What busy schedule? Jeremy Corbyn stops to record wedding message in middle of campaign

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn took time out of media interviews before a rally in Cornwall to record a clip to be played at a couple's wedding.

Hayley and Andy are getting married on Perranporth beach soon and will have a blessing played to them on their big day from Mr Corbyn.

Their friend managed to duck in while the Labour Leader was having photographs taken with people on the Cornish beach and Mr Corbyn was only too happy to oblige.

Shortly afterwards he left for Newquay where he was addressing a rally by Labour Remain supporters about the EU.

Just a few weeks ago, Boris Johnson launched his Brexit Campaign to leave Europe from Cornwall.


Mass rescue as unexpected rip tide sweeps out bathers

The RNLI have been involved in a mass rescue after more than a dozen people were swept out to sea by a rip tide.

Lifeguards were called into action on Perranporth beach on Friday when a large set of waves suddenly caused a sudden, and short lived, flash rip current dragging bathers out of their depth.

In total 10 people were rescued after being carried out by the tide, while another five were saved after being dragged out to sea by strong offshore winds.

Crews launched the inshore rescue lifeboat, which quickly began pulling people aboard three at a time, all between the ages of 17 and 19.

At the same time RNLI lifeguard James Kirton paddled over on the rescue board and picked up a male from the rip current, before bringing him safely back to shore.

Others caught in the rip current managed to get back to shore safely with lifeguards, Ben Gardiner and Andrew Byatt, paddling on rescue boards alongside them.

Luckily some of the lifeguards were training in the water at the time and saw it happen straight away.

Watch the dramatic rescue below:
